Hi there! I'm Michelle, mom of 3 adult kids, married since 1989 and I'm a grandma!!! (Milo Oliver was born on September 21, 2020!!!)
NOTE: If I owe you a penpal letter (not a swap letter), I am sad to report that I took a whole stack of letters when I went camping and have lost them, so I'm unable to reply. :(
I work at a library, which is pretty much a dream job for me since I'm a bookworm. I love travel, writing, reading, comedy, movies, true crime, history, genealogy, yoga, I'm a little bit witchy and I love anything to do with France. I'm hoping that when hubby and I retire, we can get a house in the Yucatan in Mexico.
I'm a pretty laidback person - well, I'm insanely anxious but I'm not a hardass, if that makes sense. I take my swapping seriously, but not so seriously that it makes anyone miserable. I'm deathly allergic to drama - frankly, I'm just too old for it. I try to just abide, but inequality will get me fired up every time. Don't have time or patience for hate or bigotry or homophobia.
If you're into that sort of thing, I'm an INFJ, Gemini sun sign, Capricorn moon sign and Libra rising sign. Oh and I'm a #2 on the enneagram.
Also, if you feel like we have a lot in common and are interested in being penpals, let me know. I'd especially like penpals from other countries!
I'm a bookworm and I always have been, so my list of favorites would be a mile long, but here are a few:
My favorite authors are Anne Rice, Stephen King, Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Alice Hoffman, Elizabeth Berg, Gillian Flynn, John Green, Anais Nin, Dorothy Parker and Tom Hodgkinson. I love chick lit (esp. Brit chick lit), thrillers, non-fiction, true crime, horror, and literature.
If, for some reason, you do not receive something from me and I am one of your swap partners, PLEASE be sure to contact me and let me know. I have NEVER flaked on a swap in my life and I don't intend to start anytime soon. But if you don't get something from me and I've marked my items as "sent", let me know and I'll resend right away. Thank you :)
I am a really tolerant, easygoing person, but communication is very important. If something crazy happens, let me know and we can work something out. If I don't hear from you, I have no choice but to assume you're flaking. I don't post flakers on my profile because I prefer to handle things privately.
I'm a firm believer in everyone's right to believe as they wish, however, I don't have any wish to discuss politics or religion. I appreciate religious art and imagery and I'm interested in the study of different belief systems, but I don't need to be converted to anything. Thank you for respecting that. :)
